Noticed this book yesterday at Foyles in London. I don't think it has been mentioned here yet. Guess some of the illustrations will be known to a few of you here

A browse through “Selling Folk Music: An Illustrated History”

Looks interesting though very much the US side of the pond.
Q 'it is easy to understand why folk music has been marketed as America's music'

Oooh, it sounds like it might be an interesting book. But talk about "selling folk music" - the hardcover book is $75 from the publisher ($40 from Amazon), and even the Kindle edition is $30.

But even if you can't afford to buy the book, you can get a video look through it for free: Lots of the items pictured are in my library - I've spent 30 years collecting them.

Watched some of the video. What a peculiar looking book - like someone's scrapbook, with no annotations. With the price and what looks like no text, it seems like it is designed as a coffeetable book for some music mogul to have on display in their office to show "Hey, I know all about folk music!" while not having a clue to what the illustrations represent.

I'm betting Joe could give you extensive information on what he has, rather than just flashing the covers as a tease.

One of my favorite threads from long ago:
I'm especially proud of my collection of songbooks from Oak Publications. They're fascinating to page through.
